Earlier today President Barack Obama issued an Executive Order (E.O.) [13563] outlining his Regulatory Strategy, "Improving Regulation and Regulatory Review." If you follow us on Twitter (@RegsRule) you already know about this E.O. However, if you don't follow us on Twitter, you may still already know about the E.O. because the Administration has taken great efforts today to draw attention to the E.O.  The President wrote an op-ed article in today's Wall Street Journalannouncing the new E.O. and issued two Presidential Memoranda addressing the topics of the E.O.  The Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget issued a statement about the E.O. and the White House Office of the Press Secretary issued a Fact Sheet about the E.O. This RegulationWriter Alert provides links to all of the White House documents issued today in support of this new E.O., as well as links to some of the media coverage of the issuance.
